Christine aims to provide quality piano and theory tuition at her Aspley (Brisbane, Australia) studio and currently online via Skype/ FaceTime.
She has completed an Associate in Music Australia (AmusA)(AMEB), a Bachelor of Music at the Queensland University of Technology (2014), a Master of Music Therapy at the University of Melbourne (2016), and completed her training as a Neurologic Music Therapist (2016). Christine was an Accredited Teaching Member (MMTA) and Secretary of the WA Music Teachers' Association (2017-2019). She presented at the West Australian Piano Pedagogy Conference on 'Approaches to teaching Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder' in 2018.
All students learn differently, and have various musical goals and interests. With this understanding, Christine aims to use both Music Therapy and Piano- Teaching knowledge to provide individually- tailored lessons to children, adults, and individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Christine currently teaches students who learn piano for leisure, want to have performance opportunities and students who want to complete AMEB practical and theory examinations.
Christine ensure that lessons are always taught in a safe and friendly environment, and will always have an updated Blue Card and National Police Check Certificate.
"Thank you for your continued guidance, patience and encouragement that you offer to Finn (10) and Elke (7) during their piano lessons each week. Your easy-going nature and dedicated professionalism creates such a positive learning environment. Both children respond well to the consistent format of their weekly lessons, clear instructions for practice, and your ‘ear’ for detail. It is also comforting to know (as a non-musician), that I can contact you if any confusion arises during home practice! Thanks to you, Finn and Elke are progressing very well, and I can see their musicality and self-confidence growing in equal measure."
“Christine is an amazing piano teacher and mentor for anyone seeking great achievement and enjoyment in piano studies. She is highly experienced and very professional which you can see in her lessons and in the results she creates in her students. She has a heart of gold and is extremely patient with my 3.5 year old. She comes up with creative ideas to encourage him to learn and play. He gets very excited when it is piano lesson time. I would highly recommend Christine for anyone looking for a piano teacher.”
“I am very glad to have Christine Louie teaching my daughter and me. I always wanted to learn piano and watching her teaching my daughter motivated me to start. She is a very knowledgeable, patient and organised teacher. Her teaching approach keep us interested in learning more and more.”
"Christine is such a patient piano teacher and she teaches different students in different ways. Annie likes learning piano with Christine as she uses lots of her strategies to guide and encourage Annie. Thanks very much for your beautiful work, Christine! We can’t wait to see you next term."
